|Drop Off Diagram|
Dear SST Parents and Guardians
During Orientation and the First Week of school, flyers were sent out showing the approved diagram to drop off your child(ren) in a safe manner at the front and side of the building. This diagram represented the “flow” of traffic, drop off points, and that a single lane would be used to accomplish this. Please note the sole purpose of the diagram was for the safety of our students, parents, and staff in the unloading of passengers each morning.
It has come to the notice of administration that this diagram for dropping of students, is not being followed and the safety of our students are subjected to a hazard each morning because there are parents using the exit gate on the side to drop off their students instead of using the designated drop off procedure. This is jeopardizing the safety of our students each morning and needs to be ceased immediately. Please follow the drop off protocol provided by administration when you drop your children off in the mornings.
Thank you for your cooperation.

A group of 9th graders attended the Texas Teen Author's Book Festival at St. Edwards University in Austin, TX on Saturday. The festival had over 30 authors of young adult books and the students had the opportunity to meet the authors, hear them speak on the writing process, and purchase their books. The authors included Claudia Gray, Pierce Brown, Rick Yancy and Libba Bray.?
Many of our students also toured the university and in speaking with students, got a glimpse into their next step in academics.
We had a wonderful time and thank our administration in sending us on this wonderful literacy adventure!

This way build rapport and respect between the student, parent and the teacher which improves students' grades and behavior at school.
